Today i went to the 1/8th Nitro Magazine Drag Race at Willowbank Raceway. It was a great weather for drag racing and the cars are simply awesome. Here are some of the shots i have taken.

The first picture is taken from Pentax K7 video screen shot and edited using the custom filters on the K7

A fun series - I particularly like the third one of the old Falcon; brings back memories.

Great photos, I remember the days at Calder park drags something we miss in Melbourne but great to see pics of drag racing. I must get up there to a meeting one day. Ain't going to happen in Melbourne.

Love it! I'm a BIG fan of drag racing. Love the front engine dragsters. The shot from the staging lanes is my favorite.

Fun series - I took a double-take on #4 as I thought it was two separate shots. Can those two really compete ?!

Thanks guys

rodneyr: what happen to Melbourne drag scene?

This is my first time to go to the drag race here in Brisbane. It was fun and enjoyable. I would like to go to the drift events next time.

no way that car on the right lane could compete with the dragster(without the dial in ofcourse)..i took that shot when both cars are still practicing prior for dial in.
